                Abu Dhabi - Five days after entering the orbit of Mars, the spacecraft sent the United Arab Emirates the first image of the red planet.





                <a href="https://www.de24.news/"><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="https://www.de24.news/a1/de24.png" alt="© www.de24.news" width="400" height="20" /></a>&nbsp;The&nbsp; photo published on Sunday was taken 25,000 kilometers above the surface of Mars, wrote the Emirati Prime Minister Mohammed bin Raschid al-Maktum on Twitter.  Sheikh Mohammed bin Sajid al-Nahjan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and de facto ruler of the Emirates, spoke of a “decisive moment in our history”.






                <a href="https://www.de24.news/"><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="https://www.de24.news/a1/de24.png" alt="© www.de24.news" width="400" height="20" /></a>&nbsp;The&nbsp; "Amal" mission (hope) entered the orbit of Mars on Tuesday at a speed of 18,000 kilometers per hour.  A day later, a Chinese probe also swung into orbit to explore the surface of Mars.  Previously, the USA, the Soviet Union, Europe and India had reached the planet in their own missions.  On Thursday the rover "Perseverance" of the US space agency Nasa is supposed to land on Mars.

It is supposed to stay in Mars orbit for around two years and examine the surface of the planet at all times of the day and year.  <a href="https://www.de24.news/"><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="https://www.de24.news/a1/de24.png" alt="© www.de24.news" width="400" height="20" /></a>&nbsp;The&nbsp; probe is said to orbit Mars every 55 hours and take a full image every nine days.  <a href="https://www.de24.news/"><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="https://www.de24.news/a1/de24.png" alt="© www.de24.news" width="400" height="20" /></a>&nbsp;The&nbsp; first scientific data are to be published in September.
